The Rules Of Hair So Short

Right on the last third of 2017, Lauren Conrad in baby steps introduced the world to her new bob haircut, in an effort to keep things simple, now that she’s a busy mom, so Lauren today carved out a journey if one wants Lauren’s style.

First things first, ask the stylist for a textured long bob or a chin-length bob with layers, bobs shouldn’t be angled too much because they’ll look dated while determining if you want hair long enough for a pony tail, and your hair will change texture once it’s no longer weighed down by length.

Now, a bob takes quite a bit of commitment on your part, it takes every six to eight weeks  of visits to your stylist to maintain one’s bob or lob look, and and a bob looks its very best when the bob is not overstyled.

Find Us In Lapland

Lauren Conrad’s team today turned over their space to Selena from Find Us Lost, who recently got in a major fix on her love for winter getaways, roaming her way to Lapland, Finland, where they are best known for husky sledding (dog sledding), and the Artic Sea.

While sporting the best that Paper Crown has to offer, Selena discovered a standalone sections of Lapland, showing off a long list of places to lodge, things to do, eat, and drink, especially if you’re looking for a new favorite haunt that overlooks the beauty that winter has to offer.

All Symptoms On The Face

The Lauren Conrad team today once again got into proper skin care of the face, reaching out to those that do not just suffer from oily, dry, or normal skin, but those people that have a combination face with a variety of factors.

Combination skin are certain areas of your face tend that are either dry or oily than other parts of the skin, so first find a gentle face cleanser to wash twice a day that won’t strip moisture or leave it tight and dry, and exfoliate your skin at night twice a week to eliminate dead skin.

Next, moisturizer must be done for oiler skin with a shine control, and richer creams for dryer skin, and there’s one more important step you must take in your combination skin care routine, apply SPF to protect against the sun, even for an overcast day.

Go Help Yourself

Team LC today struck again with their favorite self-help products that are books and podcasts, self-help should not be considered a stigma or a sign of weakness, it’s just getting an uplift of powerful words, statements, and ideas after being drained emotionally and physically in all directions.

One will be amazed by the amazing array of freeing and inspiring books that Team LC has to offer, it all comes down to eliminating the negativeness, celebrating the positiveness in your life, realizing the incredible power one has they never knew the did, and being a minimalist that eliminates the excess in your life.

Lauren Conrad and wardrobe risk of 2018

Risks That Give You More

Lauren Conrad and her gang today talked about something they usually never get into, risks, not risk about investing (though you should get some cryptocurrency while you can), but risk of  fashion, especially since this is a brand-new year with plenty of new beginnings.

It all came down to a simple little quiz broken down into A, B, C, and D answers, which define one person’s current methods, and what needs to be changed about them, A’s need to minimalize themselves, doing a major closet clean out, and investing in a few evergreen pieces.

For the B’s, it doesn’t hurt to have a pop of color in the land of neutrals you live in, C’s need to consider a little basics in their drive for trendy pieces, and D’s must stop playing it safe and add a few or more fun pieces into their wardrobe.

Pre-Baby Is Busy Too

Yes, we know that when the baby is born, one mother and father cannot be seen by the public for at least a year or two, but the activities before the baby arrives can be pretty hectic too, so it’s a good idea to have meals that just need pre-heat.

Lauren Conrad’s Ilana Saul found casseroles free of processed sugars and salts, but instead had fresh veggies and lean meats baked in them, homemade soups and stews help a great deal with pre and post baby, you also have options of wholesome smoothies, muffins, energy bites, and protein porridge to get mama-to-be and post-partum mama on her feet.

Organize Like A Disease

Lauren Conrad came to the realization today that she will never be a true minimalist, let alone a simple one, so Lauren summoned the expertise of Clea Shearer the help Lauren be an extreme organizer in places like the closet, the bathroom, and the kitchen.

Clea’s The Home Edit is especially one place you’ll find more creative ways to stay organized any room you’re in, but Clea starts with Lauren at the closet where shoes are stacked, baskets are used for clothes and shoes, and the one-year discard rule if you haven’t worn a piece quite often.

The pantry is all about dividing food between breakfast, lunch, and dinner, having opens bins to save time, and spending 15 minutes each month weeding out expired food, the bathroom involves keeping products you essentially use everyday, creating categories for all things bathing, and holding a daily drawer, and the office is all about easy access to very important items, a happy supply of items, and marking a specific spot to let you know of incoming, current, and outgoing projects.

Waste The Waste

Lauren Conrad’s team today came up with five simple ways that you can reduce the waste you have as you continue to celebrate the arrival of 2018, while 2017 wastes away in the rear-view mirror.

Mainly, it’s all about reducing the use of plastic waste such as toothbrushes for bamboo toothbrushes, using reusuable shopping bags and reusuable straws, and refuse utensils given to you for take out, though they say use cloth towels for the kitchen, they too can bring big germs, so it’s best you keep on using paper towels because they don’t leave germs, and can be easily disgarded.
